Burning Issue on + disc HL-DT-ST DVDRRW GWA-4164B by LG

Have this problem burning + disc Once in a while I'll get a bright thin circle where it looks like it didn't burn or something. Disc will not play, have tried various blanks, Sony, TDK, HP etc. My firmware version is 1.05. Is their a newer firmware version for this model?

    Being new to this I'm not sure what you mean by rinning, maybe you meant running. Anyway, I'm using good disc, but I did notice that my provider is sonic solutions, file version Is there an upgrade to this and where would I find it? Also, Nero info tool says my ASPI is corrupt. I then used the Nero version but it still does the same thing. I think I need a new burner and that this is not a software problem. CD's burn okay.

Are you rinning a sonic burner? I get the same problem once in a while. smudges fingerprints etc will give you a burn error. I use imation disks. doesn't really matter what media you use. some of them are thicker than others and loadup hard.

Hi marymichael2,
I see that you are having issues burning using Nero.
First check if the setting of Nero is correct for the DVD drive open Nero then go to Extras click on Get system info for Nero to detect the system devices and windows info for proper compatibility and Burning Detection of the DVD drive.
If the error states that there is something wrong with your DVD driver then you can check to see if resetting your DVD drive can fix the issue you reset you DVD drive by going to the registry editor.
regardless of what OS you have the steps are the same.
  • Click on Start then Click all programs look for Accessories, then look for CMD or Command Prompt then click it to open the registry editor Tool.
  • Once you have the Registry Editor on the left hand side window look for HKEY LOCAL MACHINE click on the arrow on the left side of the Folder to show the submenu,
  • Then click on the arrow on the left of System
  • Then click on the arrow of CurrentControlSet
  • Then click on the arrow of Control
  • Then click on the arrow of Class
  • Now under Class will be a list of devices identified with Numeric ID's
  • Look for this first numbers {4D36E965 then click on it
  • On the right oane window it will show you info about your DVD drive, just look for UpperFilters and LowerFilters right click and delete both then close the registry editor
  • I suggest that you restart your computer and then try burning again
If the problem still occurs then most probably you can try reinstalling Nero, also make sure that there are no other burning software on your Computer that may cause confusion with the detection of the DVD drive.
Reinstalling windows can be done to fix the issue as well, but is the last option if all else fails.

I hope that this helps.
Thank you for choosing Fixya,

Can i burn dual layer DVD in HL DT ST DVDRAM GH 22NS50

I visitied and looked at user reviews for your burner...some of their 'eggheads' had problems burning DL discs--of multiple brands, too. Some guys really seemed to hate it--however, one posted a link directly to LG's site, on which I found some firmware updates that might help you! LG makes everything, for years now, so I'd try it... (once you get there, click the 'Drivers & Software' tab) >>CLICK HERE

I need a driver program for HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GH60N ATA Device. Where Can I get the driver program? Thank you!

You dont need drivers for that. As soon as you plug it in, your OS shoula automatically detect the hardware.

If your looking for burning software, I recommend CDBurnerXP Pro.

I have hl dt st dvd rw gwa 4165b cd/dvd on my emachine computer. I want to use the dvd to back up stuff on my pc and the cd/dvd will not record the files. It worked once and now it is time to back up and...

> wont [sic] backup files now

What error-messages do you get? EXACTLY !

If the recordable-media is "blank" after you think that you have written to it, then the laser inside the burner has failed.
Spend $40 to buy a new CD/DVD reader/writer.

Lost drive for HL-DT-ST DVDRRW GSA-H21L

When starting up your PC, just before the Windows startup logo appears and after the PC starts up, press F8, and then choose the "Last Known configuration" startup.

You can start working from there on...

Hope That Helps!
